to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening in the last seven days when for the prior five or six months nothing happened publicly. megyn: let me jump in. there are so many names that i think the viewers may be confused. the
of characters in the scandal that brought down the c.i.a. director general petraeus is growing. it now involves the commander of u.s. forces in afghanistan, the general john allen who took over the job when general petraeus left it to run the c.i.a. now officials say general allen's nomination to become the supreme allied commander in europe is on "hold" while potentially inappropriate e-mails are being checked out, and her name is jill kelley, a friend of the petraeus family and triggered the original f.b.i. investigation that revealed the director was cheating on his wife. she contacted an at she knew, shirtless agent, claiming to have received anonymous threatening e-mails tells her to stay away from general petraeus. it is unclear but the f.b.i. found reason to open an investigation. investigators determined that the e-mails were from general's biographer paula broad wall and she and general petraeus had an fair and neither had done anything criminal but reason that are inexplicable at this moment, there is more after thousands and thousands of e-mails were discovered thousands and thousand

: thank you, bill. the former cia director arrived here on capitol hill an hour and 20 minutes ago and a source close to the general told fox news the expectation he will tell the house intelligence and senate intelligence committees he too believed it was terrorism within 20 four hours of the attack. active link to al qaeda and ansar al-sharia to wanted to establish a islamic state in eastern libya. the source told fox news they expect the general to bring with him the original talking points put together by the cia. those talking points had input from other intelligence agencies as well as the office of the director of national intelligence and that petraeus apparently did not know they would be provided to u.n. ambassador susan rice. he does not know who the author of the final version was and these talking points would be uses as the basis for the statements on sunday talk shows on september 16th that this was spontaneous event and linked to the anti-islam video. lawmakers said they wanted to stay very focused on the attack itself and not the former director's personal problems
of a gripping, terrifying spy novel. you got a bioweapons scientist and covert cia officer who is working on developing all sorts of biological weapons that are used in extreme interrogations. some of those interrogations with the bioweapons result in death. and the cia, what does it do about this? the agent who is involved and apparently who has a discomfort with what he's been doing gets his drinks spiked against the cia. it is an extremely convoluted, intriguing case and as you well outlined but is extremely convoluted. it's ten years old, the kennedy assassination and many if not a all -- >> that is my next question. since it is so old, a number of witnesses they would need, some of his fellow officers now in their 20s or 30s would be in their 70s or 80s. not only could they be dead but their minds are certainly not what they used to be which is always a problem in an old case that comes to court after decades. but in this particular case, just getting evidence, you're talking about getting evidence from the cia. >> well the family is having an extremely difficult time getting evidenc
and working with the great group of people in the cia. nwhen did the affair start. and did it starpt as report indeed afghanistan when she interviewing him >> those are inaccurate reports based on my discussions with him early on when this started to break a week ago last friday. he told me it started two ask half months ago after he was the director of the cia and it ended four and halfs ago. >> during the time i was with you, guys, i never saw general petraeus alone. he always had you around him or a key aid. he had a staff and entourage. and as cia director, he wouldn't have that. and was that one of the reasons he was vulnerable as he was popaula broadwell? >> i don't know if thisit was that specific relationship. he may have had a harder time adjusting to retirement. let's face it 37 plus years since she was 18 years old starting with west point and end happened as a four star. i think he was down and vulnerable at that point in time and just the right circumstances or the wrong circumstances, prevailed. and he made a bad decision that he owned up and taken responsibility for it. and did
that susan rice gave it her best shot, the cia has taken responsibility for producing that intelligence report which was a week late amended, in essence, where they said it wasn't really exactly what happened, and what happened was that, you know, it was a premeditated attack. but to be clear, susan rice also said in the video you showed that this was a military-style attack. there's never been confusion about that from the beginning. they never said this was a bunch of guys who climbed the fence and jumped over. they said it looked like it came out of a spontaneous demonstration. remember, the guy who conducted the attack himself gave an interview and said he was able to round up the guys because of the anger over the video. so i just think this is making a whole lot about nothing. megyn: i know, okay, okay, let's not retread all the old ground. what simon said there was right about the guy, there was some question about the vid crow in the early days -- video in the early days. but the white house didn't say we're getting conflicting information, we're hearing on the one hand that it
to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. earlier today, general david petraeus said that the cia talking points meant for the susan rice appearance recentlyally contain the information that there was evidence of al qaeda's elements involved in this attack. but it appears as if those talking points were altered by the white house or somebody close to the white house to remove any reference to al qaeda's involvement in the attacks. we have yet to discover who has changed the talking points to make the president look for favorable and mislead you, by falsely labeling the 9/11 attacks over spontaneous mob over the video. petraeus has no idea what was provided to rice or who was the author of the talking points that she used that, he had no idea she was going on the talk shows until the white house announced it one or two days before. now, the looming question is, in this coverup, who did it? now, earlier, fox's own katherineererridge explained where the talking points went once they left the cia. >> what we are told about the talking points is that it went through an inter-agency review, including
for this hour. the acting director of the cia met for more than an hour with senators john mccain and lindsey graham along with the u.n. ambassador susan rice. the three senators emerged from the meeting saying they were honored by the fact that the cia director would meet with them, just three random senators and not in some official capacity testifying before committee on the hill. they appreciated the fact that the administration and the intelligence community was going to such lengths to e swaj their concerns to personally answer their questions about the libya attack in a closed-door meeting with the cia director himself, even though these are just three random senators. the senators said their questions were answered as reasonably could be expected and they were willing to consider the president's nominee for secretary of state. they were throwing hear out those nominations fairly and without prejudice. yeah right. that's not the way it went. here's actually what happened after that meeting today. >> we're not going to consider this nomination until we get answers to our concerns. we're
petraeus was tapped for the cia. now, officials are reviewing up to 30,000 pages of communications. >> stop right now. i'm not -- okay. >> i don't know math -- >> 30,000. >> it was a very big font. >> it might be times roman 18. hold on a second. >> almost as big as the font of this headline. >> do we have that number right? >> hold on a second, i'm not really good at math. >> my eyes are bad. >> i think i've proven this, not good at math. let's talk to a guy who went to harvard. >> true. >> you've got two years. >> you're running a war. >> you're running a war, first of all. >> sure. >> most important war, decade long war, you've got to bring it to a close, a lot of stuff going on over there, taliban blowing your people up, work with the afghans, turning guns on you, you're not focused here. let's say you sent 30,000 e-mails over a two-year time period. what does that break down to per day? >> we don't know the time period. >> yes, we do, 2010 through 2012, 30,000 e-mails over that time period. pages. pages of e-mails. >> he's doing the math. >> i can do that much math. that's 15,000 a yea
that former cia director david petraeus will testify before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow. that information is coming to us from kelly o'donnell who spoke to a veteran senator on capitol hill and, of course, it comes as some tough questions are expected today for president obama. he's giving his first news conference since being re-elected. he will meet the press at 1:0 this afternoon and probably should be prepared to answer some tough questions about general petraeus and allen and the fbi investigation as well as libya, not to mention the fiscal cliff and we're learning more about the woman who knew both general, tampa socialite jill kelley. a senior defense official says the e-mails between the two were more than just calling one another sweetheart, they were flirtatious and unprofessional. both of them wrote letters vouching for her sister in a child custody case and she made this phone call claiming she had some sort of diplomatic status which she does not. >> i am an honorary consul-general so i have unveilability so i should -- they should not be going across my pro
